Journal index updated to include 2017

The Illinois School Board Journal is published every other month by the Illinois Association of School Boards. The index of Journal articles, covering the last 10 years, has been updated and is available by clicking here. From that link, readers can search articles by subject or author.

In 2017, the Journal offered school board members dozens of articles relevant to their work, covering topics such as the teacher shortage, response to and policies for working with transgender students, the rationales behind changes in annual calendars and daily bell schedules, school funding reform, planning for referendums, school safety and security, and more.

The Journal's mission is to serve school board members with information and insights that will help them be effective. The focus is on school board performance and anything that affects it. Each issue is mailed to some 6,000 members of local boards of education. Each edition also goes to about 2,500 school administrators, state and federal government offices, college and university officials, organization leaders, and interested citizens.
